Last week's sold-out Crystal Ark/Hot Chip concert in Washington, D.C. wasn’t your run-of-the-mill rock show.
During the middle of Crystal Ark’s opening set, lead singer Gavin Russom took a few moments to talk about the power of music in the fight for equal justice and equality.
In saying “music can be a force for change,” Nussom made a deliberate nod to his support for the LGBT community and equality efforts worldwide. In addition Nussom’s shout out, all of the members of Crystal Ark sported HRC’s “All Love Is Equal” buttons.
Not to be outdone, electro band Hot Chip followed with a crowd-pleasing performance while also sporting “All Love Is Equal” button.
The band is known for its vocal support for LGBT equality and featured several same-sex kisses in their music video for "Don't Deny Your Heart".
